6/1/24 – Rothrock GRIT Gravel Grinder Watch Party

6/1/24 – Rothrock GRIT Gravel Grinder Watch Party

Join us for the Seasons of Rothrock GRIT Gravel Grinder Watch Party. The GRIT race is the second of four Seasons of Rothrock races. Last year was a blast! Jim had his bull horn to pull in racers. Roy set up his water tower. Scot poured cokes. Andy and Erica made sure there were plenty of food for the racers. And the watch party gallery made sure bikers were pumped up for the last several miles (and even had a cheese tray to snack on!).

Wanna race? Sign up here: https://rothrock.hvwcycling.com/whipple-dam-gravel-race/

Wanna join the watch party? RSVP to join us at the Support Station for a fun little lunch party to cheer on the riders and watch a great race. NO WORK INVOLVED (we take care of that part!). There should be hundreds of racers and they really appreciate the bell ringing and good vibes. Let us know you are coming with an RSVP so we can give you directions and info on how best to arrive.

Please arrive by 10:30am (no later than 11am) to stay off the race course and plan to stay until around 2pm. Bring a chair, food (hot dogs to grill if you want), bells, flags or just yourself. No beer in state parks so if you choose to ignore that, please bring a container to conceal it so that Seasons of Rothrock does not get fined. THANKS! AND SEE YOU SOON!
